I learned the importance of composition when as young kid I posed for calendars for Minneapolis Moline under the guidance of my dad and Art Jensen, the photographer who put it all together. Nothing will save a poorly composed image and that was drilled into me at an early age. Photography has been an art form I have loved all of my life. My work is focused on the beauty that surrounds each of us every day. Most images are taken of subjects and in lighting that is ever changing. The beauty is there if you take the time to look for it and this is what I share with others … the transient beauty of nature.
This is the part that I do not enjoy, so we’ll keep it short. I am or have been an attorney, photographer, business owner, custom gem cutter and jewelry designer, author, public speaker, soaring pilot and full time caregiver for my wife Corky who had MS for forty-seven years before she passed in November 2013. I developed a strong interest in photography when I was nine years old and by age fourteen had my own darkroom and was engaged in professional photography. Photography has been a constant in my life.
